My Puppyhood Tales!

Yes, it's time again for another puppy video! I got several really cute ideas for what to call this series from Sara, Lian, and Ludo - thanks! - and just decided to go with Sara's "puppyhood tales."

It's funny because when I thought about doing this, mom assured me that we had lots of video of me when I was growing up. But now that we started looking at it, it's true we have quite a bit of video but it is mostly bad! You know, poor lighting, boring activity, stupid commentary (mostly goofy stuff mom says in the background), etc. Where are the early videos of me learning tricks and obedience stuff and going to obedience classes? I think even though mom and dad bought a video camera specifically to document my puppy days, they didn't do a good job at all!!!!

Any way, today's video clip is of my first time walking on a leash! I was about 8 1/2 weeks old. You can see that mom's leash-holding technique left a lot to be desired, but I think I was doing pretty well! Listen for the bird singing in the neighborhood - it was a white-throated sparrow!

Gotta zoom!

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! You were just a tiny little bundle of fur! And you walked so nicely for your Mom! What a cutie!

Ludo van Doggy said...

You did so much better than I did on my first lead walk. What a good cute puppy you were!

Sara said...

You were sooooo teeny tiny. You did great for your first try. I remember all Oreo wanted to do was bite the leash, bit his collar, bit his harness, bite the tag on his collar.

He still bites his leash when I first put it on. Old habits die hard.

Very cute video! You little furball.

You did a great job for the first time on leash. I wish I had Dare's first few leash experiences on video, (well, maybe it's better that I don't). LOL She was like a little mule on the end of the leash, till she figured out that she was the one that had control over whether the leash was tight or not. Once she figured that out, she was great.

Oh! how cuteeeeee! You were to tiny!

Jolanda said...

Cute, cute, cute.

Bree and Reilly said...

Look what a confident little fellow you were just a prancing along trying to teach your mom how to walk properly. You were very cute too.

wow Ricky, such a cute puppy and what a star on the leash, that was your first walk on a leash? Very impressive ;-)

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh my goodness, Ricky - you were TINY!!!!! I think I was already bigger than that when I was born - hee! hee!

I think you walked really well for your 1st time, You should have seen me!

My humans are like yours - they got a video camera specially for me and then took loads of rubbish and totally forgot to get footage of important stuff, like me at puppy class and stuff...they're MUCH better now but they've missed my cute puppy days and early important milestones! :-(
